If you get tested you do not have to isolate until your results. Only if you have symptoms.
Sounds like she did nothing wrong
Unless she left Melbourne without a valid reason. But there is no requirement to isolate waiting on results. So by the time you get your positive result (4 days) you could have been in close contact with hundreds of people
No, if you get tested you have to go straight home afterwards and isolate until you get the results.
It’s the directive that’s been repeated over and over again, and would’ve been reinforced to her at the test.
Thing is, I'm buggered if I can spot in the current Vic Chief Health Officer Directions a duty on all persons tested to self-isolate or self-quarantine until the person receives the results. And the current (from 30 July) directions are a tad stricter than earlier ones, so I understand.
Persons who are close contacts
under the Diagnosed persons and close contacts direction certainly face more restrictions on their movement than other people in their area, but the woman trapper spoke of may not have been a close contact.
MM, my son in Melbourne coughed at work - sent straight to a test, and was directed to self isolate pending the result. His workplace shut down until he received the result.
That woman is a stupid ignorant fool.
Because some of the testing sites are in shopping centre/Bunnings carparks there were too many people doing a bit of shopping following their tests.
It was a massive talking point weeks ago, and the consistent directive is to go straight home.
The testing site near my local Bunnings has signs everywhere telling people not to enter and go straight home.
Everyone who is tested is instructed to isolate.
Anyone who gets tested and doesn't self isolate is quite simply a selfish f**king idiot.
